Fiore Legal Holding Manufacturers Accountable for Defective Product Injuries

Manufacturers and distributors are responsible for ensuring that their products are safe before releasing them to the market. Defective products in design, manufacturing, or marketing can cause serious harm to consumers, and companies can be held liable for injuries or fatalities caused by their negligence. If a defective product has injured you or a loved one, you may have a product liability personal injury case. These cases require the expertise of experienced attorneys who can investigate the product's design, manufacturing, and marketing to establish liability.

At Fiore Legal, our team of skilled attorneys has a proven track record of success in product liability cases, having recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. We will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable and help you obtain your deserved compensation. Contact us today to speak with a Los Angeles personal injury attorney.

Defects in Product Liability Cases

Whatever the product, three types of defects can help prove liability in your case, including:

Design Defects

This type of product liability claim is based on the defective design of a product, meaning that the product is inherently dangerous, based on the design alone, rather than an error made in the manufacturing process. The entire product line is affected, rather than one particular item off the assembly line. Examples of design defects include the following:

  • Products that are flammable or prone to melting (such as a heated blanket that catches fire)
  • Mechanical defects in vehicles
  • Structurally unstable products, such as a table with uneven leg lengths so it is unstable and cause injuries

Manufacturing Defects

This type of claim involves an appropriately designed product; however, an issue occurs in the manufacturing process that causes a flaw in an individual item or a set of individual items. Consequently, the object becomes dangerous and unsafe for its intended use, while other products may be safe. Examples of manufacturing defects include:

  • Using the wrong materials in the building process, including screws, bolts, fasteners, etc.
  • Incorrectly installing wires and circuitry

Marketing Defects

Marketing defects are one of the three product defects that can lead to product liability claims. They refer to flaws in how a product is marketed, such as inadequate warnings, incomplete instructions, or misleading advertising. Here are some examples of marketing defects that can lead to a product liability personal injury claim:

Inadequate warnings

A product that does not have proper warning labels or instructions can be dangerous to consumers. For example, a medication that does not have clear instructions on dosage or side effects can lead to severe injuries or even death.

Incomplete instructions

Products requiring assembly or installation must have clear and complete instructions to ensure consumers use them safely. For example, a ladder that does not have proper instructions for use can lead to falls and serious injuries.

Misleading advertising

Companies that make false or misleading claims about their products can be held liable for injuries caused by the product. For example, a weight loss supplement that claims to be safe and effective but causes serious health problems can result in a product liability personal injury claim.

Failure to warn of known dangers

If a company is aware of a potential danger associated with its product but does not warn consumers, it can be held liable for injuries caused by that danger. For example, a car manufacturer that knows about a defect in the brakes but does not issue a recall or warning can be held liable for accidents caused by the defect.
